Life is Good mini album

In all my time at AllyScraps, I've had the pleasure to post amazing works by so many wonderful women on this blog. Truly gorgeous projects every week. This is one of my very favorites, beautifully simple but engaging on EVERY page. Check out Roree Rumph's Life is Good mini album, you'll be amazed.




Instructions:
Cover

1. Paint the chipboard cover with off-white acrylic paint, multiple coats, and let dry.
2. Hand stitch each plank on the chipboard cover with off-white embroidery thread.
3. Adhere the cardstock sticker for the title to the chipboard cover with 3-d foam adhesive.
4. Cut out flowers and leaf shapes from patterned paper, and distress the edges with a file. Layer the leaf shapes, flowers, and buttons, and adhere the flowers to the chipboard cover.
5. Punch two holes on the right plank of the chipboard cover. Thread ribbon through the holes, then thread again, and knot and trim each end.
